Butterfly/Distress Locs


Faux locs styles come with many variants that promote the growth of your hair while preventing damage. One such variant is the butterfly or distressed locs.

Suggestive of the name, butterfly locks or distressed locs give the appearance of a butterfly, thanks to its wing-like characteristics spread throughout the locs. This wing-like characteristic makes butterfly locs different from other faux locs techniques.

The wing-like feature is achieved by holding a piece of hair outwards with the rest of the hair wrapped around the locs. Butterfly/distressed locs hair gives your hairstyle a modern, chic feel while also having the protective characteristics of faux locs dreads. As your natural hair is held together by extensions, they prevent breakage and other forms of damage to your hair.


Boho locs are a long-lasting, carefree version of faux locs, which currently is trending all over the globe. With adequate maintenance, bohemian locs can be sustained for 8-12 weeks.

With three locations in Houston, Elite Braids is dedicated to providing customers with Boho and other forms of faux locs. Get in touch with us to book a faux locs session at one of the salons that are nearest to you.

Two women braided my hair in box braids and they did an awesome job at the Westheimer location. They were very professional, took their time and did an all around awesome job. They held a great conversation and time flew by. I will definitely be a returning customer and recommend them.

I got the Bohemian Goddess Locs! I love the style but absolutely hate the human hair that was used. Within 2 days of my hair being done it was already looking very tangled and nappy... not the locs but the human hair that was used. For the price of the hair it should be better quality. And I can’t comb it without it shredding really bad.... kind of disappointed how bad the human hair is getting by the day.... BUT other than the hair I would recommend!

They do quality work. Everyone was nice and professional and I was very pleased with the outcome of my hair. They listened to my concerns and gave me exactly what I asked for. I definitely recommend this place.
